Cheng prepped at Taipei Municipal Nangang Vocational High School, where she helped lead her team to a National High School Team Championship in 2020.

In 2019, Cheng was elected to represent Taiwan in the Junior Fed Cup. In the Asia/Oceania Qualifying Group, Cheng clinched a victory for Taiwain with a win over No. 1 seeded Australia, advancing her team to the 2019 Junior Fed Cup World Group. In Lake Nona, Florida, at the Junior Fed Cup World Group, Cheng only competed in doubles action and picked up wins over Serbia and South Korea.

“Yu-Hua is a very talented player and has had very good results in international competition throughout Asia and Australia,” said Brown. “We see her making an immediate impact as a freshman not only in singles, but we are confident she will add valuable depth and experience in doubles. Yu-Hua is very personable, and we see her fitting into our culture well.”

Cheng reached a career-high International Tennis Federation World Junior ranking of 557 a week before she turned 15. She also has a career-high Universal Tennis Ranking of 9.69 in singles play.
